Many villagers as well as the opposition were up in arms after Calangute was notified as urban area in the official gazette. They say that urbanisation would lead to rapid concretisation of village as PDA has classified most fields and hills as settlement areas in the ODP. That the village would loose its identity and tourism activity would be severely hit was another allegation. Panchas Anthony Menezes and Rupa Chodankar got the motion to denotify Calangute passed at its fortnightly panchayat meeting.
